The firm also represents Cristal USA in an indirect purchaser class action alleging a price-fixing conspiracy among US producers of titanium dioxide in the Northern District of California and in a direct purchaser case brought by Valspar Inc. in the District of Minnesota. With respect to the former matter, we won our second Motion to Dismiss in August 2015.
